Diamond History

Diamond pet foods is committed to constantly developing new and innovative products and processes to ensure your pet is getting the proper nutrition they need to thrive. This includes a commitment to product safety that has led to a comprehensive food safety program that exceeds industry standards.

Diamond has always been a family-owned and privately held company. We began in 1970 with a shared vision. Our founders, brothers-in-law Gary Schell and Richard Kampeter, believed that nutritious pet food could be produced at an affordable price. Together, they purchased a former milling company in the town of Meta, Missouri (population 220), and the Diamond company was born.

Since then, we have modernized equipment and expanded production capacity to meet growing demand, with plants in northern California, central California, Missouri, South Carolina, Arkansas and Kansas.

Today, Diamond Pet Foods remains one of the fastest growing pet food manufacturers in the country. Our products are trusted by professional breeders, trainers, veterinarians and pet owners in all 50 states and in over 100 countries around the world. The second generation of Schell and Kampeter families still own and operate the company. And we still believe that every pet is worthy of the best. Including yours.
